Hello, m1k3y.

Can someone explain all the deleted posts about gun control, mental illness racism etc? by Min_thamee in metanarchism

[–]Gintoh -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Well the thing is that anarchism is a very authoritarian ideology. If you say ONE thing that even slightly deviates from the majoritys opinion, even if it's not oppressive at all (like the posts you referenced in this thread) you will be silenced. Such absurdity is to be expected when the ideology is absurd, which is why almost no one is an anarchist, and that's the way it's always going to stay, a mildly amusing fringe ideology in the corners of the web.

I mean even Noam Chomsky would get his posts removed from r/Anarchism because he's for gun control. That should show you how narrow minded and authoritarian anarchists are.

Oh poor baby, where your feewings hurt by the meme?

Saying you where "triggered" by a fucking meme is extremely offensive to people with actual ptsd who deal with serious issues, stop being a baby and stop being so delusional, oh wait, you're an anarchist.

This is why anarchism is COMPLETELY irrelevant in modern society and why only .00001% of the population are anarchists, and why it will never go anywhere.

/u/agnosticnixie needs to have moderator status removed. by hate-camel in metanarchism

[–]DontThrowMeYaWeh -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I agree. I see my post on there. They told me I got banned for "condoning harassment against transgenders" however, my post is an egalitarian approach to the problem and in no way encourages people to bully anyone.

You can see it there on that link.

In the appeal of my ban, all they did was grill me on the opinion at hand.

Seriously, check out the discussion thread:

you have been banned from posting to /r/Anarchism. you can contact the moderators regarding your ban by replying to this message. warning: using other accounts to circumvent a subreddit ban is considered a violation of reddit's site rules and can result in being banned from reddit entirely.

me:

This is not the type of behavior I expect from /r/anarchism mods. Especially if you look at my comment history for this subreddit. I've barely post anything here. I post one of my own opinions about transgender people and I get banned. I'm not bullying anyone, I'm not harassing anyone, I'm not breaking any rules.

flaxrabbit:

When your opinion is that bullying a marginalized group is OK, then yes you are breaking the rules.

me:

um that was totally not my opinon. You can go read that comment again.

me again:

Here, I'll help you out with understanding it. to go against things that don't have to do with government policy like bullying trans people is kind of silly if you don't have the scope of everyone else

That portion over there that says, "if you don't have the scope of everyone else." is kind of an important part of the entire sentence. It basically is stating that it's unfair to treat trans folks bullying as worse than anyone else's bullying when everyone can experience bullying.

I'm not condoning bullying at all. So I'd like to be unbanned now.

Egotisticallama:

So bullying a white cis male for being white is just as bad as bullying a trans individual for being trans?

me:

Depends on whether or not you consider white cis males able to be bullied for being white.

However, a trans person being bullied and a white cis male being bullied are both equally bad. For example, A trans person being told to kill themselves is just as bad as a white cis male being told to kill themselves. One is not inherently worse than the other unless you value one person's life over the other.

In your example, if you assume that a white cis male gendered person can't be bullied on grounds of their whiteness. Then no, it isn't the same. But if you do believe they can be bullied in that way, then it is. I'm not an all-powerful God that gets to determine which is objectively worse than the other. Personally, I don't think most people will say that bullying a cis white male for being white is possible. But I do think most people will agree with me in my example above, that bullying either is bad and not worse for one type of person than the next. Bullying is bullying.

me again:

What does this even have to do with me getting unbanned. I didn't break any rules and my comment still doesn't condone bullying.

-Enkara-:

It kinda sucks not having your thoughts and opinions respected don't it?

me:

Oh man, the condescending attitude is strong.

You guys don't understand what respecting an opinion is. You guys saw the keywords "bullying", "trans", and "silly" in the same sentence, ignoring the context, and banned me.

And on a topic like the gender spectrum, it's a fluid area of debate where the answers aren't simply black and white. There's opinions on both sides and people are still trying to figure out where to settle. But I guess /r/anarchism is a one sided subreddit because it seems like you guys don't want to hear other conflicting opinions, just progressive ones (even though mine is still progressive... but all inclusive)

Anyway, you mods should unban me because I still haven't broken any rules.

agnosticnixie:

There are no opinions on both sides. There is a wrong opinion, and there are the lives of trans people.

me:

And there are the lives of non-trans people too. I'm not sure what's wrong with that opinion.

So am I going to unbanned?

agnosticnixie:

No

And now they don't respond to me at all, they won't unban me, they're basically tyrants trying to spin a narrative for /r/anarchism.

Can I please get unbanned, I didn't even do anything wrong except have an opinion (an egalitarian one at that!).

They are legally the same as everyone else at this point. What's the problem?

queer and trans folks who struggle every single day for the right to define themselves, to access gender-appropriate healthcare and to live without harassment by other people

Well, for one thing, society defines your gender (it's a social construct). However you're brought up shapes your gender. You don't get to just pick it one day and begin living as the chosen gender. Second, what in the fuck is gender-appropriate healthcare? That doesn't even make sense, that's as obtuse as saying race-appropriate healthcare.

Many queer and trans people live – and lived – in our prison and jails, in our homeless shelters, in run-down houses and apartment buildings, and on the corners of every major city.

So do a lot of regular straight people. Big deal, why do they get a pass over others? They're legally equivalent to their none queer and trans counterparts.

I'm going to say that I'm definitely for legal equality, but to go against things that don't have to do with government policy like bullying trans people is kind of silly if you don't have the scope of everyone else (it's almost selfish in nature). It's like what tumblr feminists are doing now, fighting things that really aren't legal issues and more societal issues for everyone but they make it about themselves and women.

Cops Bought Dylann Roof Burger King Hours After Charleston Shooting by Striker115 in Anarchism

[–]selfsameOx -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Seems legit. Just like Scott's not reacting to 8 .45 caliber rounds into his back at 20 yards, none of which caused the gun to expel any gas, and Scott casually jogging over to lay down with clear footage of his shirt and back looking completely intact (no blood even minutes afterward, on a light colored shirt - cop also not harassing the cameraperson seems interesting).

Also correct me if I'm wrong but Roof used a rifle? But went in and was seen but no panic ensued, while he sat down for a minute before shooting? Then CCTV shows he leaves in a black sedan, which wasn't his, and didn't return... but later his rifle is found locked in his trunk.

Call me crazy but we do love our false flags.

Its because they're serving the rich. You've let ideology blind you.

I've repeatedly said that I'm ok with people owning guns, but that society's perception of them as toys that act as self defense is wrong. You're sounding like a propagandist yourself, since you're unable to respond to my argument without spamming op eds and right wing sources.

Owning a pool is not more dangerous than owning a gun.

How many times are pools used successfully vs unsuccessfully? This is the important question. It is much more common for people who own guns to be harmed than helped by those guns. The key question here is how many people own pools successfully with no issue.

In 626 shootings, only 13 were legally justified.

10 people die per day from pools, 2 are children.

Gun deaths are over 32,000 a year, which is about 9 times that amount.

Do you really think that the anti-gun lobby, comprised mainly of moms, is more powerful than the gun industry?

Conversely, if he does not have a mental disorder, does that not mean that he was 'rational'?

If so, why don't I partake in similar acts? Does that mean in the future if I am exposed to racist propaganda, that I too will go around killing blacks?

Well, obviously not. There was some deficiency in that dude that made him susceptible. You could say that it may have been his upbringing etc etc, but neural structure is not just genetic, it is also shaped by stimuli/upbringing.

I think your post is an example of categorical thinking. Things are not so black and white, or in categories.

I have sympathy for your position. But no one with a clue lumps everyone with a mental disorder in the same boat. Not everyone with a mental illness is a killer, far from it.

I think we need to break down categorical thinking. It seems like you want to keep 'mental illness' to a certain class of person that has some purities. It seems like a bunch of 'mental illness' 'identity politics'.

What the Confederate flag really means to America today, according to a race historian by Zhuangzifreak in Anarchism

[–]Quasiman447 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Let's do not forget the hangings that accompanied the establishment of the Confederacy..

Re the Great Hanging at Gainesville in Confederate Texas, where forty suspected Unionists were hanged in October 1862, and where others were shot "trying to escape", as well as in Cooke County men were killed in Grayson, Wise and Denton counties.

Most were accused of treason or insurrection, however few had actually conspired against the Confederacy, and many were innocent of the abolitionist sentiments for which they were tried.# - In other words they were "witch hunted!" Ed.

As for being "Suspected Unionists," many of the hanged men had told the secessionists, they intended to abide by the just laws and constitution of the United States, just as their forebears had been doing since 1776.

While many of the ones who responded to the rhetoric, which evoked passions more suited to football rivalries than political discourse, who raised no objections to the hangings, deserted the Confederacy in droves when war became a reality.

Re Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain who headed North, when the irregular unit he had joined was to be absorbed into General Lee's Army, who finished the war piloting a Union riverboat.

Adolf Hitler was a Jew, as well Jews had been in firm control of the Soviet Union since the sham Zionist inspired 1917 Revolution, they had similarly been running things in France, Great Britain and the rest of Europe since time immemorial.

They start wars to further Zionist control and to refinance their ops .. they are genocidals, they owned the arms factories then as they do now, they are beating the secession drum like they did in 1862.

They financed Napoleon, Oliver Cromwell, and Charlemagne they perpetrated the 911 attacks, and had sufficient clout in the United States and Japan to get away with the Pearl Harbor deception .. there were no Japanese planes at Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941.

the whole armed revolt against the government thing is really utopian nonsense.

I really wish this movement would get over that idea... Although it does let you know who to not take seriously. It is not possible for untrained people to defeat the most powerful and technologically advanced military on the planet, ESPECIALLY when they don't need to concern themselves with PR which they obviously wouldn't if they're slaughtering their own citizens.

the only question worth asking.

It's not worth asking about how easy it is for people to access weapons that allow complete fucking failures at life to kill tons of people? Cause that's a new thing...

Hardly, I just let him know I don't waste my time on close minded, unenlightened halfwits that have the same intellectual and emotional capacity (not to mention vocabulary) of the average poorly read 10 year old.

The confederate flag doesn't represent racism. To most of the people that live here, it represents southern pride.

why? it's true. Circle jerk all you want, the proliferation of guns can be a bad thing.

his dad buying him a gun certainly made it easier for him.

the stats still show that gun bans are effective. Besides the whole armed revolt against the government thing is really utopian nonsense. During riots people don't even target gun stores anymore. There will not be another Watts Riots, or at least there hasn't been.

40% is still less than half.

Just look at every other country with stricter gun control. Proportionately they have way less shootings. How can you say it wouldn't make a difference in America. I don't know how to get a gun on a black market do you? We give these shooters way too much credit as calculated bad guys who have this Big master plan In their bedroom. In many cases it's just dudes who have access to a gun and then decide to use them.

Yep, you're right. But pro rated you guys are absurdly high. So do a better job at gun control, it's been enough already for years now. It's just crazy at this point.

Right, there have been a hand full of bombings. Now compare that to the number shootings and you will see there are much more shootings. I contend that it's "easy" to build a bomb. I don't think most of the shooters would have substituted building a make shift bomb in lieu of using a gone. If guns weren't available to them all of these tragedies wouldn't have happenEd.

If he didn't have a gun then he wouldn't have killed these people. Yeah, I'm not arguing that he isn't racist, he's allowed to be racist, people suck and have stupid beliefs everywhere, but because it's so easy to get a gun in the U.S. There are way more shooting there. The spot light shouldn't be on him being racist it should be on how this guy was able to get a gun. Next time it will be another religious bigot or a crazy dude who hates women. It doesn't matter what the cause is, that's why it's irrelevant.
